No, a lack of premature optimisation was requested. 

When one is engaged in premature optimisation, one does lots of
benchmarks, and finds things that seem to speed up nicely, and
has many happy nice numbers ... which have nothing to do with
the real world use of the system. Meanwhile, the changes made
to support the premature optimisations often have other, unforseen
(or handwaved away) negative effects.

premature optimization is the root of all evil" -- Knuth
